Notes

From comment posted by Noah at etree:
Hey all,

This currently circulating copy of this show attributed to the taper Neil Merin is a myth. That reel that I transferred was indeed made by Merin in the 70s for the person I got the reel from. The assumption was made that Merin had taped the show. At the time of the transfer, Merin (and his taping buddy, Jeff Siniawsky) was still missing in action from our community, thus I could only go on the information I was given. Last December, when Siniawsky contacted me for the first time (he and Merin are still quite close), the subject of 06/23/74 produced fuzzy memories that, at the time, couldn't really prove or disprove Merin's recording of the show. He very well could have been in Florida (it is where he and Jeff live now), and certainly could have taped the show, as he and Jeff taped everything else they could that summer. But, time had fogged the facts from being set one way or the other. Well, no longer. have finished the final CDs of Moore's 06/23/74 master, and sure enough, it's the very same recording (though the Merin reel is missing tons of in between song banter, etc...).

I'm sorry for my part in propagating myth. But, at least I wasn't claiming that the thing was taped by Phil with mics on stage. ;-)

Subject: Awesome
Remembered this date as one of my favorite live show cassettes from my old car in the eighties. I thought thaud quality was ok, good in the first set with Row Jimmy and Jack Straw but then it just got better with Weather Report -> China Doll and by Dark Star -> Spanish Jam it is absolutely mind-blowing. Good to have in its entirety for historical value even if the tuning gaps are tedious but I will be moving the above mentioned mp3s to my pod for sure. Very fine taping job esp. second set. You can't beat AUD tapes for recreating the feeling of being there.
